Add to Outlook calendar

University Cities share a singular DNA that produces a constellation of magical effects: highly educated populations, innovative economies with high rates of entrepreneurship, outsized arts and culture sectors, and large nonprofit sectors that indicate a vibrant civil society. These traits mirror the large, coastal cities, but in University Cities they happen in mid-sized cities with low unemployment, low-cost living, and extremely low violent crime rates.

Lexington joins Ann Arbor, Durham, Fort Collins, Lincoln and Madison as one of these cities.
